Angel Beats! 11

…In this episode, both Naoi and Hinata found out about Otonashi’s justasplanneds, and want to HELP OUT

But

EVIL

SHADOW THINGS COME OUT

Get your sick fantasies out of your mind, that's not what he's talking about

And so they FIGHT it

YES CAUSE TK IS THAT AWESOME

Tenshi can hit it with both hands behind her back

They realize that the shadow-things

Are actually NPCs that have been turned into monsters.

Then, Takamatsu gets Devoured (+1 dark quantum yeaahhh)by a shadow and becomes an NPC as well.

Man, he must fail a lot of grades

So then Yuri, who knows all about Otonashi’s plan, tells him to announce it to the rest of the SSS. They are faced with a decision; to get Devoured and doomed to suffer the same fate as Takamatsu, or to disappear to somewhere else.

Other stuff happen as well;

Tenshi gets wings...

...I'd say yes.

...and Otonashi realizes she's not actually an angel.

…Finally, Yuri tries to find out who’s creating the shadows. So, she goes into the Computer Library Place Setting Thing, and finds OLD PEOPLE (who’s probably a NPC).

Macrosoft Winding XO

She finds that people were STEALING COMPUTERS from the COMPUTER PLACE THING WHATEVER. AND THERE’S A TRAPDOOR LEADING TO GUILD INSIDE THE ROOM.

I TOTALLY WONDER WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT BECAUSE THERE IS SUCH A SMALL POSSIBILITY THEY ARE GOING TO GO INTO GUILD I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN OH MY GOD

See, this again goes with my theory.

Episode 1: Fight against Tenshi to get meal tickets.

2: Fight Tenshi in Guild.

3: Iwasawa DISAPPEARS

4: Hinata ALMOST DISAPPEARS (Fight Tenshi in baseball)

5. Tenshi fails.

6. Fight Naoi

7. Fight Fish.

8. Fight Reisen Tenshi.

9. Flashback (Otonashi).

10. YUI DISAPPEARS.

11. Fight shadow people.

…See? There are no duplicates at all. There is no main boss. The fight shifts to different people EVERY SINGLE EPISODE (besides 1-4)

I like the variednesses of this, but it makes the story extremely choppy. There is no goal, no point. The story has no structure.

It seems like the Afterlife School or whatever really is in a video game. The 1s and 0s from Episode 1, the multiple references to gaming terms (“NPC”, “Guild”, creating “Software” for weaponry, etc.), and even the appearance of shadows to “prevent people from playing too long”.

I'm not sure if this is just a glitch on my computer though :/

And then this. The whole world is pixellated. It’s like .hack (excellent series of animes, BTW), except they aren’t really aware that they’re in a game (Unless Yuri already knows).

…I’m completely certain that the ending is going to be revealed as the people waking up outside of the game; maybe finding out that in reality, they suffered something extremely traumatic and were put into a new program to fix it, and eventually woke up with fewer injuries (emotionally, I’d presume).

…It’s sorta far-fetched now, but with these types of turns (the shadow was /completely/ unexpected), anything can happen with this anime.

This episode itself definitely had its highlights, specifically the battle (which you all should totally watch) and to some extent, the ending that showed all the remaining (main) characters. All in all, it wasn’t a very bad episoe, but the turns still make me feel :/
